  • A very local Wat for sure. Monks, and the dog, were very chilled. I particularly liked the stupa, which is the oldest part of the complex. It definitely had some blessing powers.

  • Hope you have a scooter.. or have a ride with a Songthaew.. It's a 3km hike out of town on foot.. and on top of a hill to boot. Small or rather.. the Small Mountain temple caters mostly to the local devotees and the odd tourist that has to come and see. If you're lucky you might also see a coconut harvest in progress using trained baboons to do the picking. Hats and sunscreen if you're hiking to this temple.
